A Trip to Village Schools in Manado

A Trip to Village Schools in Manado

Recently Family Care Indonesia volunteers Eve and Terry visited Manado and surrounding villages for two weeks distributing children’s “Character Building” VCDs and activity pages in surrounding schools. They taught the children action songs, plus simple English phrases, and played games together with the children.

The principals were very happy for the visits and the donated children’s materials. Many thanks to Sriwijaya Airlines, our hosts and other who made this trip possible!

Christmas visits to Bintaro and Bogor

This Christmas, Family Care Indonesia members visited two homes for the elderly and two orphanages in Bintaro and Bogor as part of their ongoing efforts to encourage the elderly and help improve educational opportunities for the orphans.

With each visit the Family Care Indonesia young people presented a lively Christmas program and then enjoyed a sponsored lunch together. For the elderly Family Care Indonesia distributed individual care packages of personal items and at the orphanages care packages were given along with two new computer sets for the children’s schooling.

Leadership Training at Universitas Bunda Mulia

Leadership Training at Universitas Bunda Mulia

During the month of November and December Family Care Indonesia volunteers worked with the Universitas Bunda Mulia faculty in an advanced student leadership training program focusing on the need to reach out and care for others.

A special “I Care Workshop” was held that included T-shirt painting and the creation of “Care Packages”. The packages were designed for each student to give to those less fortunate and were distributed to the children at the two centers of the Yayasan Kasih Anak Kanker Indonesia.

We had a wonderful time working together with the Universitas Bunda Mulia faculty and students in this program.
